I picked randomly.. I thought Matsuda Shota will make me watch it even if it's bad. I was half wrong as even Shota can't save a mediocre series, but I still finished it.

Story : There is nothing new about giving up a sport because of an incident and then encouraged by someone you decide to try again. The only original thing about it is the regatta part.

Acting : I'm a read more little disappointed by Hayami Mokomichi, he did a lousy job in this series. Still, I'll continue to watch his shows, at least he has potential.

Music : One song that repeats over and over. I like the song but it gets boring after a while.

My advice: Watch it only if you're a fan of the actors or you have nothing better to do with your free time. It's also good for people that like this type of motivational series.

I found this drama to be a keeper. I was hesitant to watch it originally but finally came around to watching it and I must say, there wasn't much to be dissapointed about. Though I would have wished to see at least one competition I was so caught up in the characters it was easily forgiven.

This series had one of my top 3 favorite actors in it and he played his read more role well. I was in sync with every emotion this drama tried to convey. I regret not watching it earlier in fact, this series is a favorite. The cast was PERFECT; each playing their part to the full potential, though I had my doubts all the characters really developed and you got to see each character grow up in a sense thanks to the actors.

I found the ending to be a tug-of-war as far as my stance on it. I really liked most aspects of the ending, just a couple things I wish would have gotten tied off.

Over all very impressed, like I said I wish I had broken down and watched this series earlier. I had been watching a couple others on and off but from episode 1-9 I kept going, I didn't break for another series. Give this one a shot, even if you thought it wasn't your type I was in the same boat and really think you will be just as glad you decided to give this one a watch as I was.
